Positive Breakthroughs Takes A Stand For Business Owners And Their Mental Health

By Positive Breakthroughs

27 October 2021, Victoria, Australia: Every October marks the significance of World Mental Health Awareness Month, purposed to raise awareness about mental health concerns globally and mobilise efforts to support mental health. Positive Breakthroughs, an executive coaching and counselling service urges the general public to seek professional help beyond this awareness month to cope with on-going mental health anxieties that could have exacerbate further in this pandemic and post-lockdown. 

 

The Final Report Volume 1: A new approach to mental health and wellbeing in Victoria by the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System states that “An estimated 1,147,000 people in Victoria are likely to experience some level of mental illness or psychological distress at some point in 2020–21.” The Melbourne-based company wants Australians to realise a critical factor — being open to professional help is an important step to recovery.

Victoria, Australia: To cope with ongoing lockdown fatigue in Victoria, Positive Breakthroughs, a coaching and counselling business specializing in executive coaching, psychotherapy, and counselling, believes that caring for business owners and their mental health is key to the next part of its therapy strategy. Though many at the grassroots have lost their jobs, the mental stress that business owners and C-level executives often go unseen. Positive Breakthroughs hopes to help businesses understand they can operate effectively when they adopt a reverse approach of caring for employees from the bottom up.

 

According to The Guardian, one in five Australians reported high levels of psychological distress due to the pandemic in June 2021. The Australian Bureau of Statistics echoes this in a survey revealing — more than one in four (27%) people living in Victoria experienced high or very high levels of psychological distress compared with 18% in the rest of Australia.

“Happiness can only exist in acceptance.” — George Orwell. This quote rings true in our life at home, but more so at work. Workplace environments comprise different personality types, beliefs, leadership styles, and more. What does it mean to practice acceptance at work How and when should we vote for change? Is acceptance of people acceptance of their habits? Here’s what industry professionals say and what we believe:

 

Acceptance in the workplace

Lindsay-Rae McIntyre, Chief Diversity Officer at Microsoft (then IBM), says, “When every employee feels safe and supported, they can be their best authentic selves.” Several studies echoed this, reinforcing how important it is for employees to feel valued and understood and how it contributes to their performance and gradually the company’s success. Awarded as one of Australia’s most innovative companies in the Smart100 and a Top 10 SME in the DELL Business Excellence Awards, LEXIGO shared simple examples of acceptance. 

March 8th marks International Women’s Day 2022 with the theme, Changing Climates: Equality today for a sustainable tomorrow – a premise that recognises the contribution of women and girls around the world, who are working to change the climate of gender equality and build a sustainable future.

 

Being the mother of five children, three daughters and two sons, I am a firm believer that gender equality starts at home. Families are at the forefront for change. From breaking down gender stereotypes to sharing everyday household chores, heads us in the right direction for a glorious gender quality future. 

 

My daughters think nothing of washing the car or tinkering under the bonnet. My sons can whip up a meal of mouth-watering goodness in a flash. They are not so keen when it comes to the vacuum cleaner, but overtime have learned to suck it up. Onwards and upwards as we continue to strive for the right gender balance.
